From the FamilySearch Wiki Featured Article Commitee:

The FA committee is planning to feature an article from North Carolina and have noticed the wonderful work that has been done on Wake County, North Carolina.  The article is chock-full of valuable links.  There are only two catagories that are in need of completion: "Boundary Changes" and "Populated Places".   Please let us know when you are ready to have your article featured.  We appreciate all you do to connect such valuable information with the world. 

P.S. Thank you for your efforts to complete the article.  Before we feature this article, the stub label must be removed by the contributor(s) of the article.  Thank you again, especially to Taneya.

Oh - that's great!! I can help and add some more information tonight to help round it out. Thanks! -- Taneya

Update - 11:46pm 4/5/12 -- I've added some information in those categories now. -- Taneya

Update - 4/17/12 - Stub label is now removed.

P.S.  Great job.  Two suggestions:  First, since you are the coordinator for the NC GenWeb page for Wake County, you might want to edit the page that links to censuses and census indexes so that the reader can link to FamilySearch historic record pages for the 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840 and 1850 census indexes.  These indexes have been posted fairly recently.  They are useful for two reasons: (1) they are indexed; and (2) images are available directly from the index. 

The second suggestion relates to the infor box at the right of the article.  Rather than have a red link for "Raleigh", you migh link to the Wikipedia article: "[1].  I would make this change, but am reluctant to make the change because I might mess up the box.  I'm not an expert in Wikitext.  If you don't know how to make this change, we might be able to find someone who is able.

Thanks again for all your work.
